Roof-hopper falls over 8 metres from a building

A young woman is in hospital after falling off of a roof in Newcastle.

The 23-year-old fell almost 10 metres when she and her friend were ‘roof hopping’ buildings down Laman Street at Cooks Hill.

Police say it appears she misjudged the distance between two buildings and fell, just before midnight on Saturday.
